"The thing that we all have in common is time. We all get 24 hours in a day. What we do with those hours is what sets us apart." -Jim Kwik

Ever wonder why in the age of smartphones we can’t remember one phone number? Or why it’s so hard to focus on one thing at a time? Have you ever wanted to be faster, smarter?

In this episode of the Knowledge and Mileage Podcast, Kris sits down with Jim Kwik, a world expert in speed-reading, memory improvement, and optimal brain performance. Think of him as a “brain coach”.

Jim believes we can all become better versions of ourselves and shows us techniques on how to improve our memory and how to learn faster. This episode is longer than usual, but you’re not going to want to miss one minute of this in depth conversation.
